is at stake. it is a critical time for the country. we face challenges, massive debt, and an economy that is not putting our people to work. young people coming out of college can't find work. china, which is going to be a major economic power. it has been taking a lot of jobs from people in ohio, with radical violent jihadists. this is a big election about big things, and i am proud we are focusing on what we'll do to bring real chance to a country that needs it. we have a president today that -- has a different view about guesus being on the right track. my view is that this is a turning point for america. and those people who want change from day one will vote for paul ryan and myself. as i go across the country, i recognize that people don't want 23 million americans out of work, looking for a good job. they don't want administrations compftablfortable with trillion dollar deficits and kids not getting jobs out of college, and they don't like the gridlock in washington. over the coming days, i will talk to people across the country about what those changes look like. this is deta

people they're talking to are telling them, the economy is still the central issue in this campaign. >> i think the economy is not doing well and i think romney is the guy that can turn it around, gets back on track, get things going again for starters and i'm worried about the budgets, the deficits. all my kids are in their 30s and we need the bubbling economy to move them along. >> a lot of people are hurting right now. but the president's ideology is what we need. >> i would say that the stimulus package was a really big success and i thought that, you know, i want government to play a role in our lives and i have a feeling that romney doesn't think that it should. >> let's met bring in jonathan althar. welcome to my home state. let's talk about the economy and we put it in the context of the latest poll. jonathan, is this an economy election in ohio? >> it always is. this is the heartland of america and even when the economy isn't as big as it is this year, in ohio in particular, it's about those working class voters and whether they think that one candidate or the other is providing

[applause] so here's the story of a local company that came from here, went all the way and, you know, he's done real well with that. meanwhile, he's invested in a ton of other companies. so i just want to s
hampshire's economy is humming along and unemployment is at less than 6%, so when president obama and mitt romney visit the battleground state, their stump speeches tend to include promises of more job creation. our david mattingly visited two small businesses there to see what their executives think about the candidates' proposals. >> reporter: randi, victor, the unemployment rate in this critical battleground state is under 6% and well under the national average, so when it comes to campaign promises about creating jobs, businesses here say leave that to the professionals. two new hampshire small businesses that found a way to beat the recession. one is a free-wheeling tech company. producing codes that makes e-mail and the internet work better. the other has been in business for five generations. >> high carbon steel photograph needles. >> reporter: manufacturing metal pins for everything from antique phonographs to the military. >> these are ping that go into the ammunition boxes for the u.s. government. >> reporter: in tough times they both found ways to create new jobs. what every ca

of the entrepreneurs in this room who are the talent pool for the next economy in detroit are thinking how do i get a job with the city. so -- >> no career advice. >> no, but i mean, seriously. the young talent pool, the 20-somethings and 30-somethings are not thinking about the public sector as a career path. so let's just be blunt and honest. the city is not going to be able to harness the talent that's there that will get the city to the next place. so invert the question. not how are we going to hire those people, but how are we going to bring them into the process sitting where they are in universities, in the private sector, in the ngos that are dynamic and interested in the city of the future, and the city has to invent the way to do that. collaborate, create communities of interest, harness that talent pool, um, and give them the resources where it's necessary if the resources are there. now, there's not a lot of city resource, but the city has the legitimization capacity to say you are now the agent of change. it used to be the department of x, and the department of x is now really incapab
%. they did beat estimates even though the cfo said he's seen evidence of a weak economy all around us. you were talking about climate change and this issue of whether it's responsible for some of the weather changes that we've seen. munich re had created a bit of a firestorm when it put out a report noting that north america was seeing mcs in unusual events and attributed it to climate change. it caused quite a stir at the time. back to you. >>> coming up, chris christie touring the carnage. millions still without power. mass transit trying to get back to line. we'll get a progress report. >>> this morning not a lot of movement. yesterday the sale. things orderly in the first day of trading since everything was shut down because of sandy. this morning futures down by about two points. nasdaq up by about 2 1/4 points. >>> jfk and newark airports both operational on wednesday, but saw very few flights. jpk is seeing more arrivals than departures, but net back to normal. courtney reagan is at laguardia this morning. >> reporter: good morning. so we haven't yet seen a plane take off here. the

frenzied weekend with obama and romney sparring on the such over the economy. well, supporters are working on getting out tuesday's vote. john harwood has been watching all of it. good evening, john. >> reporter: larry, as they crisscross the battleground states the presidential candidates got one last fresh piece of economic data before tuesday's election. that was the october jobs report. it was better than expected which allowed president obama to deliver a message of how far we've come. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. and today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> reporter: as you'd expect, larry, mitt romney stressed the opposite case which is unemployment today remains higher than it was when president obama took office. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate. down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%. and that's 9 million jobs short of what he

in the unemployment rate is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. >> i don't think so. the last month, the unemployment rate came down three ticks. and the romney campaign complained that we hadn't created more jobs. this month, the number of jobs created was 30%, 40% higher than expected and was fairly strong. and then they criticize that the unemployment rate ticked up one tenth. it's the last number before the election, so i think both sides are going to see, try to go through and interpret what it means. i think overall, most economists view it as a fairly solid report. and until we get the growth rate of the economy up faster than 2%, 2.5%, this is probably about what we should expect from a solid report. >> how does one explain the kind of inconsistency? 7.9%. that's up, with unemployment. then you talk about adding 171,000 jobs in october. >> yeah, a great question. a lot of people misunderstood how the jobs work. there's two surveys. the jobs come from a survey of businesses. the unemployt rate comes from a survey of people. each month, there's a lot of variability in bo
